December Crafty Secrets Tutorial and Linky Party

Hi and welcome to another fun Crafty secrets Linky party challenge! This month is anything goes as long as we use some of our favorite Crafty secrets goodies! I decided to make a snow globe ornament using the Retro Christmas digital sheet. The globe is dimensional and filled with pretty sequins and glitter and is eye catching enough to tie to a gift and than hang on the tree! Let me show you how I made it!

I printed out several copies of the image I chose to work with at wallet size to make multiple ornaments. I picked up fill-able plastic ornaments at the craft store that pull apart so you can make 2 globes from one ornament!

The globe is about 3.25" around so I cut a white circle at 3.33 and a blue patterned circle at 3.50" and layered them. Next I hand trimmed the image to create a circular design.

I inked the image lightly with brown ink to add dept and cover up any white edges.

Now cut out just the snowman, and ink the edges as well.

Use foam tape to pop your snowman up just a little!

Paint a wood doily white and adhere to the center of your layered circles with strong adhesive or hot glue. { you don't want your globe going to pieces on you}

Noe adhere your image and cover your snowman with clear glitter for a bit of sparkle!

Place glitter, sequins, snow etc in the center of the globe , this will be your filling.

Place a thin line of strong clear adhesive like Stampin'Ups crystal effects or glossy accents and place over the flat ilayerd image and glitter encasing it. Allow to dry and embellish with ribbon, bells and a tag if desired!

Now it's your turn! Uplaod a new project using crafty secrets supplies to the Crafty Secrets blog and be sure to hop along to see what the whole team has created for this very special Christmastime challenge!
